I actually think the outfits in X are really good. The crusaders look a bit strange, but I really like certain characters costumes. Anyway, the goggle thing is indeed to help hide their pupils, but it also makes them look even more noticeable because no one else wears goggles. --Zephyrus11 05:45, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Since they live in the desert it may have something to do with eye protection. Netherith 07:21, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Master Conjurer: Nope, it's the pupils.

If it was the pupils, that doesn't make sense because the goggles are also an EXTREMELY obvious sign they're al bhed. My guess is for eye protection. -- 23:43, August 5, 2012 (UTC)

Would you consider the Al Bhed 'human?' Edit


I, personally, consider them an ethnic group. Not sure about the rest of the "races". Dr. 8-Bit 17:58, May 26, 2010 (UTC) I agree that the Al Bhed is a an ethnic group. What reason do we have to say that they're not human? They are obviously human in pretty much every way. There would have to be some very obvious physiological differences between other Spirans and the Al Bhed for them to be considered a different species, and those differences simply do not exist.

Reasons for the swirls in the eyes? Edit

I like the Al Bhed, don't get me wrong. But I've always wondered, what discernible reasoning is there behind the swirls in the eyes? Is it just to differentiate them from the rest of the population or is it because they're Al Bhed? It doesn't seem to affect their eyesight either so it can't be that.

I just put this question up out of curiosity. If there's really no reason you can just say so and I'll drop the subject. Marael 23:08, February 4, 2011 (UTC)

Why do monkeys have fur? They share 98% of our DNA, but they are still a different species. Same logic applies to Al Bhed. Θάνατος 00:42, February 5, 2011 (UTC)
